BLESSED BE THIS PLACE
Two crematory workers load coffins into the fire, while discussing Tarantino movies. A bunny mascot gets of work and has trouble getting out of his uniform. Two elderly choir singers discuss flower decorations. A bodybuilder catches his breath after a workout. With a nod to Jørgen Leth and Roy Andersson’s observing, long takes of the human nature, Carl Olsson’s graduation film from the Danish Film School is a detailed and humoristic multiportrait film. Nominated for a Robert Award in 2014.
